19. 4th Of July Layered Drinks
You can layer drinks in any way you like- the secret is in the sugar content. This works well for red, white, and blue but you can really do this with any color combination. The other secret to success with layered drinks is plenty of ice. After you add your bottom layer fill the glass to the top with ice and pour the second layer slowly and directly on top of an ice cube.

This Jell-O recipe is… hands-down… the recipe that won me the title of the most well-liked Mom in my neighborhood. I say that “tongue-in-cheek,” of course.
